Join in with a group of like-minded people to learn more about the work of the John Muir Trust and give something back to nature by helping out with path and fence repair work and the planting and nurturing of native trees. As well as providing an interesting educational insight into how wild places have been damaged by development and how positive action might be taken to redress the balance, the experts of the Trust are also able to offer the tools and the skills to supervise your assistance. The more you understand about the impact of your work in helping keep the beautiful hills and beaches clean, the greater your sense of reward at this hands-on experience.

Preparing for Scotland

— Children under 12 receive a new friend Scotty, who comes with a storybook  telling what his life is like in Scotland

— The whole family will receive recipes, books and movies preparing them for their trip

— Scotland is a wonderful for all ages.

— There’s just so much to see and do, any time of year, with summer and winter events & festivals, excellent conditions during spring and autumn (fall) for outdoor activities, and culture and history that is not dependent on the season or the weather.

— SPRING: A beautiful time of year to visit Scotland for our clean fresh air, plants and flowers, and to see the mountains, lochs and countryside in all their scenic splendour.

— SUMMER: Another nice time to visit Scotland, and to be honest, some years there’s not too much of a difference weather wise, from spring to summer.

Summer in  Edinburgh is buzzing. The streets are alive with not only local and national visitors, but performers from all over the world converge on the city to take part in the popular Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which runs for a full three weeks in August. Summer events give way to the more relaxed pace of our AUTUMN events, like the Scottish Countryside Festival in Glamis, Angus, in the grounds of Glamis Castle, and provides great fun for everyone in the family. This is also an ideal time for all the outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy the best of walking, cycling and climbing.

— WINTER: When winter is approaching, many tourists visit Scotland just to sample the shopping experience that Glasgow and Edinburgh have to offer. Some stay for winter events, and there are some spectaculars with Glasgow On Ice, running from late November until late December, with music and ice dancing. But those who really want to let their hair down return year after year for the fabulous Edinburgh Hogmanay Party event. We also have many visitors coming for the skiing in Scotland, to enjoy the fantastic slopes and stunning scenery, but there’s no rush to get here in January or February, because the good news is, we can sometimes get snowfalls right up until Easter.
